BBC Nature has posted its selection of 10 winners for Wildlife Photograph of the Year.  Go to the link to see them.  The prize winner is, I think, head and shoulders above the rest, so I’ll post just that one and let you visit the site to see the rest.

It was taken near the emperor penguin colony at the frozen edge of the Ross Sea, Antarctica. Paul awaited the return of parent penguins, remaining motionless in the freezing water and using a snorkel to breathe.
